a) coz I hate wearing skimpy stuff...plus I'm only 13


Now, would you rather...
a) spend most of your money right before the con on last minute costume details
b) have lots of money for the con, but have a less accurate costume

A.) Quality is worth it. Besides, my best souvenirs are free! *snaps photos*

Would you rather...

A.) Wear too-small shoes all day and lose a toenail
B.) Wear face paint 14 hours straight and spend the next two days feeling like you've got windburn

B. Windburn is better than aching feet.

Would you rather....

A.) Lug around a gigantic and heavy prop all day
B.) Wear a really tight/uncomfortable costume all day?

Lug around a big ol' prop, it's what I have to do when I do my tails for a my Ninetales costume... Back problems... here I come.


Would you rather:
A) Have to bring your little annoying younger sibling who thinks they are an expert in anime just because they've seen Bleach/Naruto/Death Note /other popular fandom and wants pictures with every person and wnats everything in sight
Or
B) Be stuck with the overly protective father that threatens any guy/girl that comes five feet of you and calls them pedophiles and rapists?

(Happened to me.. well the overly protective father thing.... Now I go with my easy going uncle person figure...)

A xD 100% A. I love little anime kids they're cute! So it wouldn't bother me honestly =P I'd be happy to take pics of them with a Naruto or two.

Would you rather:
A) Cosplay as Mikuru and allow every Haruhi to come up to you and pretty much molest you.
Or....
B) Cosplay as Haruhi and have to molest every Mikuru cosplayer.

(This are from the anime "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya")

XDD I'm gonna be cosplaying Mikuru and I can honestly say A is my greatest fear going around a con as her...

A. I can stand being molested (as running away is an option). I'm much more frightened of trying to go fangirl on some random poor soul.

(I hope this hasn't been done yet)
Would you rather
A. Wear an awesome cosplay in the winter so you freeze to death or
B. wear a very simple cosplay but you stay warm

a. freeze to death, lol.

Would you rather... (when doing a character that requires a big zipper)

a. Use a #30 zipper for your costume and have to shorten it yourself, or
b. just find a regular #10 in the size you need.

Ah, living on the ragged edge of life, tearing along hell-bent for leather ahead of the looming thread-lock...so invigorating.

B. A regular 10, of course. The extra hassle of finding it is so much less aggravating than the extra hassle of shortening it.

Would you (yes YOU) rather:

A. Wear high heels that make your height appropriate in comparison to the other characters in your group (i.e. you're cosplaying the tall guy)
B. Wear flats and fuss with placement and camera angles for photos

B.) Wear flats. I could care less about whether or not my height matches the character, and I'm not about to murder my feet for 3 days to do so.

Would you rather..

A.) Have to bring a sibling to a convention
B.) Have to bring a parent to a convention

Actually both, but b.) is probably the better choice. my parents "somehow" like my hobby xD

(You're with a friend at a convention and the costume of your friend looks horrible, like, really horrible, fraying cut selvedges (hope that word is right Oo ), messy wig, etc. )

Would you rather:
a.) tell your friend that her costumes is bad and thus she's mad at you for the whole con
or
b.) don't tell her anything and be very ashamed of your friend.

(wouh, hope my english is alright^^ )

B. My back is strong. So are my arms, but it's also nice to have your hands free.

Would you rather, and be honest:

A. Remove all your body hair (yes, all) so you and your dainty little costume match better
B. Apply a full coat (yes, full) of rugged man-fluff to go with your ultra-hardcore getup
